You got mail

Over at my other blog, where I pretend to be a writer, I entered a contest recently. The mandate was to write a letter we would really like to receive.

My entry, which you can see here, read as follows:

My blessed child,

I’ve been thinking about it, and have decided that you’ve had enough confusion and consternation in your life.

So from today, I shall be answering all your questions directly, and audibly, and using small words so you can understand me.



How cool would that be?


  1. Me too, me too. I want that too!

  2. I didn't know you had another blog...where have I been? I thought you just wrote photo captions for a living. (You could, you know)

  3. The other blog used to be my main blog. I just set up Sharkbait's Reef for the posts that didn't fit there.

    And then my fish became more popular than me. (As usual)

  4. If you ever do get a letter like that, could you please contact me? Because I have a lot of questions that need answering.

  5. You know what I think? I think that God always answers our questions in small words, but we just try to listen in big words because we think we're supposed to - you know him being God and all. :) ha!

    I loved your letter! Congratulations on the win!

  6. That would be very cool! I would love to find that in my "mail box" one day! haha Thanks for visiting my blog... I hope you come again soon!

  7. I am bawling right now as I read that letter that I so desperately need to be sent to me.....I am in a state of confusion, sadness and frustration and am yearning for God's wisdom, guidance and peace. I know when I am falling down, He is the closest...I am just having a hard time finding His Hand to pull me up. Thank you for reminding me that He is always near and willing to comfort...

    Thank you for posting this.


Say Hoo Ha Ha!
